If you want to send wedding invitations that reflect your outgoing and friendly personality, it's perfectly fine to create some wedding invites with fun wording. This way, your invitations will express the elation that you feel about your big day, and guests may also want to use your lively invitations as keepsakes.

Begin the wedding invitation with a catchy phrase that will get your guests' attention. For instance, if you've been planning the wedding for quite some time, you may want to start off with "We're Finally Getting Married!" Or, in order to give your wedding attendees an idea of how you want the ceremony and reception to go, include wording like "Throw Some Rice, Take Some Pics, Toast to Us--We're Getting Married!" Your friends and family will attribute more sentimental value to the invitation, since the wording will be a genuine reflection of your personality.
Include all necessary details in the body of the invitation, while still incorporating fun phrasing. For example, break the categories of the invitation up to include: Where We're Tying the Knot, When to Show Up, Where We're Partying. This way, you can include the location of the ceremony, the time of the wedding, and the location of the reception. Include an RSVP at the end of the invitation so that you can start securing the guest list. If you don't want to include the phrase "RSVP," you can say something like "Please let us know if you can make it by (date)."
Print place cards for the reception to be mailed with your invitations, and incorporate the same type of wording on these items as well. Instead of simply printing the name of the guest and a blank for the guest to fill out if they are bringing a date, include a header on the reception card with a phrase like "We Can't Wait to See You!"
Tips and warnings
- Continue the fun wording on the envelopes as well. It is proper etiquette to address wedding invitations by hand, so if your guest list isn't too big, you can include things like "To Our Wonderful Grandparents" or "For the Best Friends Ever" at the beginning of each address.
